"Jeffrey Epstein rose from humble origins to the rarefied heights of New York City's financial elite. A college dropout with an instinct for numbers--and for people--Epstein amassed his wealth through a combination of access and skill. But even after he had it all, Epstein wanted more. And that unceasing desire--especially a taste for young girls--resulted in his stunning fall from grace. From Epstein himself, to the girls he employed as masseuses at his home, to the cops investigating the appalling charges against him, Filthy Rich examines all sides of a case that scandalized one of America's richest communities."--Amazon.com.… (more)

I couldn't finish it. That's all I can say. Not James Patterson's normal writing. I've read his other true crime stories and loved them. Something missing in this one. ( )

This book is outdated because of recent events, but it's clear that Epstein has been a scumbag for a long, long time.

The book tip-toes around well known politicians and sticks to the facts very well, which is admirable. I'm glad that Patterson left out much of the rumors and gossip that (so far) has not been proven with evidence in a court or with the questionable documentation that's been swirling around for a long time.

Even with the exclusion of the questionable, Patterson shows a clear timeline of Epstein's descent into the sexual manipulation and rape of teenage girls. The more he got away with it, the wider his perversions became. What probably began as creepy ephebophilia crawled into sexual slavery of underclass teens, abuse and blackmail.

It's a shame. Epstein could have been a philanthropist and an all around good guy with his intelligence and diversified interests. Instead, he became his worst self. ( )

Account of the very rich pedophile, Jeffrey Epstein and his sexual assaults on underage girls in Palm Beach, FL. Does not include his subsequent arrest and suicide in New York. ( )

After watching the documentary series about Jeffrey Epstein I decided to check out this book detailing his life. The book does a good job of detailing the horrific crimes that he committed and then subsequently served very little time for. The injustice of this situation is quite disgusting. Of course this book was written a few years back and everyone now knows that Jeffrey died in prison. It seems that his behaviour finally caught up with him. The book was well written with many references to actual police transcripts and trial records. Not a nice story but an interesting read about how the justice system is completely different for the super wealthy. ( )
